Open and Accessible Research

Promoting open design, research, and innovation with cities and communities.

The Foundation pursues strategic research to fulfill our vision of cities producing (almost) everything they consume. Through our projects, courses, networks, and events, we identify best practices in smart cities, green innovation, digital transition, and community building. We focus on generating high-quality case studies and outputs that can be adopted within and beyond our network of cities and regions. Our high-level research, conducted with esteemed collaborators, is showcased on our research blog.

The Fab City Foundation is committed to fostering open and accessible research.
